Good Premise, But Feels Stale

After an explosion in space and subsequent two-minute radio-out period, two astronauts return home to their wives. But they are not the same as they were.

This is definitely not one of the more enjoyable performances from Johnny Depp, and comes across as off-putting and creepy. I understand this was partially the point, but even so it does nothing to highlight the talents of Mr. Depp.

Although I cannot say what the film reminds me of, it seems like something I have seen before. The plot is so obvious, it just feels derivative and stale. Has this been done before? Is this a remake and we just don't know? And why is not all that good if the plot is interesting?

I liked it

Yeah, you have to suspend your disbelief while watching this movie. Most viewers knew something was off with him from the beginning. Some plot holes. Overall, a pretty good thriller. Not Johnny's best work but I'm a fan. Charlize Theron was the central figure and did a good job. Lots of references to Rosemary's baby but more of a scifi bent. Great supporting cast including Joe Morton and Blair Brown. It kept my attention, good special effects. Looks like people either liked it or hated it.

Waste of fine actors

This movie shouldn't have been made. I wonder if the writer and the director had any insight into what they were dealing with. Seems like they had an idea of a space and alien thriller which they made into a movie before it took any concrete shape. What started on a promising note becomes completely lost and shallow. Johnny Depp is a complete miscast as an astronaut. His expressions are too casual for an astronaut and he seems like he has no business being in a sci-fi movie. Even the actor cast as his fellow astronaut looks more like a mercenary. Depp did manage to look a bit creepy when the mystery is out. Theron fares better and is more convincing as a 2nd grade teacher and the chemistry between herself and Depp is pretty good. The plot is wanting in substance and lacks the impact of a haunting and creepy thriller about alien invasion. It fails to make the point of how chilling an alien invasion could be or how easily progress of science could be the doom of mankind. Hell, it even fails to cut a mark about how suddenly a young happily married couple's life is devastated. It was nothing more than a waste of time watching this movie.
